Caribbean - Seeing Sea



I can’t say that my dreams have come true. A little village-girl like me from Carpathian Mountains couldn’t possibly dream about the Caribbean Sea. I didn’t fantasize, I just got there for the first time in my life. It was an extraordinary experience. I could see my favorite colors in their best light. It was great to appear in the pleasant summer in the middle of the winter. 


I had an unforgettable swim and run along the sea. 



Swimming and running weren’t the only things I did during this trip. Even though my vacation was intense, I found time for making little five-minute color ink paintings.     




After arriving home I made a few paintings from memory and my impressions, which I got from the Caribbean landscapes. 



I went through some of my early ink drawings and I found this one, which makes me think about the water which I recently saw. 



If I would get a chance to go to this place again, I wouldn’t think twice. 


One of the meanings of my name is From the Sea. For the most of my life I didn’t see a sea. But the beginning of January 2014 gave me a feeling of belonging to the water.
